Special Offer

Your skin is:
a) excessively dull
b) chronically dry
c) littered with stretch marks.

If you've checked any of the above, a low-fat skin diet is likely to blame. Olive and fish oils, as you know, are great to ingest, but when it comes to topicals that treat the problem, it's like buttah! Shea butter, to be exact: a solid fatty oil made from karite nuts and long used by African women. Lube up with the new Body Butters from Carol's Daughter ($18 each), shown in (clockwise from top): Ocean, Ecstasy, Jamaican Punch, Groove, and Mango Melange-or Nivea Smooth Sensation Body Lotion ($5.49).
